A MOST AMAZING REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

A MOST AMAZING REPORT. The report of Judge Street as a Royal' Commissioner on the charges against the police in connection with the l.W.W. trials was made public a few days ago.

REPATRIATION AND LAND TAX. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

REPATRIATION AND LAND TAX. Senator Grant: I ask the Minister for Repatriation whether it is a fact, as stated, that it is the intention of the Go vernment to exempt from. land taxation blocks of land purchased or resumed from private owners for the settlement of returned soldiers? If so, have the land owners been notified that their land will be more valuable in consequence of this exemption from taxation, and that, there fore, the effect of the proposal will be really to place in the pockets of the land owners the capitalised vaiue ? ? The President (Senator the Hon. T. Givens): Order! The honorable sena tor is not' entitled, in putting a question, to argue the matter. Senator Grant: Is it not true that the effect will be to put the capitalised value of the taxation into the pockets of the owners of the land? Senator Millen: The view suggested is so much a matter of opinion that I fear it is impossible to give any answer (hat would be at all satisfactory to Senator Grant,. .. _«li?...

THE FIENDISH TACTICS OF MR. HOLMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

THE FIENDISH TACTICS OF MR. HOIMAN. Out of the mouth of the 'National- ist,' nee Labor Premier of New South Wales, has come the condemnation of himself and his party's policy. 'At one stage in the Monaro election it had been hoped that a large number of Mr. Sullivan's co-religionists intended to vote for him, but that expectation had been disappointed.' — Thus Mr. Holman, November 29, 1918, King's Hall. What further evidence could be asked by the most exacting jury? If Mr. Hol man and his party were called upon to stand trial for base promulgation of sec tarianism, the verdict on the Premier's own evidence would be guilty. The Holman-Fuller Government has been charged over and over again with hypocrisy, and with direct complicity in 'frame-up tactics.' The utmost en deavors have been put forward in crim inal and other charges to persuade the public that the Australian Labor Party is implicated with incendiaries, murderers, traitors, and pro-Germans. This Govern ment has told the peo...

THE LEGAL STATUS OF WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

THE LEGAL STATUS OF WOMEN. It is the function of good democrats to advocate Human Rights and the privil ege of political pirates to dole them out piecemeal for their own self-protection. From this standpoint the Holman Go vernment may be congratulated on hav ing conferred upon women during the session just closed several rights to equality with men, . formerly denied them. Of course, the only woman's right really worth while, because it includes- all others, will be the right to economic freedom, which can only come from Socialism. SPARTAKUS.

LABOR AND PROPORTIONALISM. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

LABOR AND PROPORTIONALISM. Some Laborites have expressed a fear that the hybrid system Of proportional representation, which1 has been introduced, will prove disadvantageous to Labor. The fear is groundless. Labor is greatly under represented in the present State Parlia ment. With proportional representation in force the votes polled at the last election would have given us 40 members instead ojf 32. The in troduction of the system' must give us another Labor man between the Lach lan and the Victorian- border; and in the Northern districts where we have no rep resentation to-day we .shall have practi cally only to secure one-quarter of the votes in each of the new electorates In order to secure one-third of the represen tation. The last statement may seem strange, but it will be clear to anyone who reflects that one more than a quar ter of the votes polled will .be a quota in a three-member constituency. The difficulty of gerrymandering elec torates under the proportional system is ...

WOMEN'S MINIMUM WAGE. BOARD OF TRADE'S DECISION. INADEQUATE AND UNJUST. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

WOMEN'S MINIMUM WAGE. BOARD OF TRADE'S DECISION. INADEQUATE AND UNJUST. The New South Wales Board of Trade, after long and elaborate inquiry into the Quality and cost of .working girls' and women's underwear and related subjects,, declared this week for a fixed minimum wage of 30/- per week. The inquiry, as conducted, and the con sequent decision of the board, constitute a travesty of justice. It is naturally claimed by women that an inquiry of the nature of that made by the board was necessarily an inadequate thlngf-that con sisting, as it did, wholly of men, the board had neither the necessary knowledge nor the practical experience called for in an investigation into the living conditions of women. Practically unanimously, every women taking any interest in the industrial life and activities of her sex is agreed that the board's decision is valueless. It is held by those whose intimate knowledge of the lives of working girls gives them a right to speak positively, that no woman li...

THE WAGES OF WOMEN WORKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

THE WAGES OF WOMEN WORKERS. The ]$oard of Trade, presided over 'by Judge Hey don, has given an . award fixing a minimum wage for adult women workers. The rate fixed is 30/- per week, without board or any other con Biucrsiiiuu. It does not even apply to all women ?wage-earners as might be supposed, but only to those who apply for a new award or variation of an award, in which case the Court could not fix a lower rate lor adults. It may, however, be many months before some bodies of women work ers could get a case prepared for the Court, and months more before they could get a hearing. Meanwhile they must put up with what they are getting. Judge Hey'don, in announcing this munificent decision of the Board, stated, that the sum really considered sufficient was 28/6 per week, but in view of the present high cost of wear ing-apparel the extra eighteenpence had been added pro tern. lie, how ever, warned the women that this 1/6 might be docked latter on when the price of rags dropped.

KEIR HARDIE'S MONUMENT. The Town Counci of Cumnock, Scot land, recently refused permission to the local Miners' Union to erect a monument to the late Keir Hardie, who was a native of the town. This decision angered the miners, and they organised for the annual municipal elections, with the result that a majority of Socialists has been returned to the council. Hardie's monument will row find a place in the town where he was born.

DOMAIN POLmCS MR. RYAN IN THE DOMAIN. The presence of Mr. Ryan, Premier of Queensland, attracted a large crowd around the A.L.P. platform in the Domain last Sunday afternoon. Mr. J. Bailey, jVT.L.A., presided. . Mr. Ryan, on arrival, was greeted with prolonged cheering. Before he rose to speak banners were hoisted for the ob servation^ the crowd, bearing the words, 'Do you favor the recall of Hughes and Cook?' and 'Are you against a recall?' Prom the vote recorded there was no mis taking the feeling of the crowd. An em phatic endorsement was given against the return of Hughes and Cook to Australia. 'Do you approve of Mr. Ryan being sent as Ambassador to England and America?' A forest of hands immediately shot up wards, and there was an outburst of en thusiastio cheering. Opening with a reference to the pleasure of again speaking to a Sydney audience, Mr/ Ryan set out the necessity of the work of the Queensland Government being placed before the people of New South Wales in order tha...

SELECTION BALLOTS. SHOULD THEY BE ABOLISHED UNDER THE NEW ELECTORAL LAW? VIEWS OF CORRESPONDENTS. "Barb" writes:— [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

[?] ??'?? - ? ' ''^mM SHOULD THEY BE ABOLISHED UNDER THE NEW ELEaORAL LAW ? ^ VIEWS OF CORRESPONDENTS. ' -. . ' ' V^lll 'Barb' writes: — ? As' future State elections are to be fought under a different electoral system from that in .force hitherto — by proportional representation with preference votes — the question of how best the Australian Labor Party can adapt itself to the new class, of political warfare ought to engage the attention of. all thoughtful men. I suggest that while, the redistribution of electorates on the three and five mem ber basis may-, not prove to be in the in terests of the Labor. Party, it may prove a blessing in another direction. : That is because it give's the Labor Move ment an opportunity of wiping out selec tion ballots. With a wide choice of suitable bearers of Labor's banner at the 1920 -contests we must win. SO discredited is the Govern ment, and so utterly unfruitful, has the term of the National ? ( ?)

A LEAGUE OF NATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

A LEAGUE OF NATIONS. In a general abstract way the . idea of the formation of a League of Nations, com bined for the purpose of preventing future wars, appeals to the human imagination as a most desirable thing.- Broadly speaking, it may be said that all nations to-day are utterly sick of the horrors of war, and that there is a deep universal ilesiro for permanent peace. Before, how-r ever, this proposition can be transformed into a living vital issue we need an exact definition of what the promoters of this scheme really mean by the somewhat vague term, a 'League of Nations.'' As Charles Kingsley once said: 'We should always demand clear- definitions — we I should ask everything from pre-destina- - tion to protection what it really means.' Do the projectors of the League of Na- j tions idea really mean a league of the] people of all nations who sincerely desire to banish war from' the world? If they do, then the very first necessary step for the formation of such a league of people...

THE MINIMUM WAGE FOR WOMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

THE MINIMUM WAGE FOR WOMEN, The Board of Trade has given its de cision in connection with the minimum wage for women -workers. The board's finding, as pronounced by the President, is not likely to give satisfaction to any decent-minded man or woman in the community. A minimum of 28/6, plus 1/6 owing to the increased cost or female clothing, is totally inadequate; is opposed to the evidence submitted to the board, and is inconsistent with the common knowledge of all wage-earners. This miserable pittance is not' sufficient to allow a young woman to live in decency and comfort, and exposes her to the temptation of any licentious ruffian who holds out the inducement of 'more of the good things of life.' The argument that the majority of women marry early in life, and are consequently not dependent Ob industry to maintain them is pernici ous in the extreme. Women shonld reap as much reward for their industry as men, and should be made as economically free. Marriage would then be more a q...

THE CAPITAL AND LABOR GAME HOW THE WORKERS MAY WIN IT OR LOSE IT. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

THE CAPITAL AND LABOR G A«i ' m ? HOW THE WORKERS MAY WIN IT OR LOSE IT. The 'Capital and Labor' game is a splendid recreation for all classes at ix every season of the year. It is a game for two parties — employers and employed r' — and by their superior knowledge of the game up till now the employers have .- generally won bands down. If it were only a question of numbers and indis pensability the workers could not help coming out on top every time. But they ;- have been a proud and 'crafty' lot hitherto and have always preferred to lose-, the game in their own way, rather than win it in the same way that the bosses do. But should they want to go on losing in the future it will be absolutely necessary to add to the list of ineptitude's by which they have become famous. The strike is the only means by which the workers can ever hope to win in tne - 'Capital and Labor' game. If they lose the strike they lose the game. Now' -. there are many ways of losing a strike, most of which are ...

Writes 'Barb':- 'While Conscription Billy yapped about Australia's part in the war, America and Japan were creating a fleet of ships with which to capture the after- war trade of the world. 'While our politicians fluted and took long and expensive trips to the other side of' the world, where they made long speeches and inquired into the 'possibility of establishing shipbuilding in Australia,' other nations were, by day and night, riveting the steel plates that spell com mercial supremacy.

A THOUSAND A YEAR-WHY NOT? III. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

A THOUSAND A YEAR-WHY NOT? HI. In the previous article the waste of pro ductive power, due to militarism, was only touched upon from what is termed a ''peace footing,' the object being to show the enormous CONSTANT losses due to merely 'preparing' for war. War itself in the violent form, although the natural and inevitable outcome of pre paredness for war in times of peace, is not the normal state of society, and was not therefore dealt with. I promised, however, to prove -from the facts of the recent war the possibility of mankind under Socialism Jiving in abundance by an average working 'day of TWO HOURS for each capable citi zen. I am not going to attempt a close analy sis of the productive power of each indi vidual unit when working collectively with many others in a large factory filled with all kinds of ingenious machinery driven by steam, electricity, or other motive power. -It would take a large volume to show this in detail. I will merely refer to the fact that the labor of...

SUCCESS MEANS WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Labor News — 21 December 1918

SUCCESS MEANS WORK. « Laborites naturally have been gratified by the results of recent by-elections, but they must be careful not to forget that those results were secured chiefly by hard, intelligently directed work. It was not merely a matter of sitting idly by while the political pendulum made a stage or two on its journey back towards a Labor Government. Much quiet unpretentious work without limelight bad to be under taken, as it invariably has when political progress is to be made. This is something Laborites might very well note. There is just a bit of a disposition noticeable in. some people at present to indulge, in One Big Blather in preference to . the dull de tailed work that makes for success. A Labor Government, with all Its advan tages, seems to be fairly within reach, and it is worth striving to attain. We are near enough to a trial of strength for organising work to be effective, and for a space we all might very well substitute practical effort. fpr the mere blowing...
